Ann Kakidi was on Monday captured in a video together with colleagues dancing to the song at court premises in a manner that has since been described as inappropriate, forcing her to apologise over the same.

“My behavior was not appropriate and didn’t reflect the respect that was expected in court and there is no excuse for such behavior. I am deeply sorry for the misconduct and request for your pardon,”Kakidi said in her apology to the Head of the Commercial Court Division of the High Court, Justice Henry Peter Adonyo.

The clerkship student on internship said in her apology that she learnt a lesson on how to behave, not only around court premises but also in public as an aspiring advocate.

“It is a big lesson to always think twice before making certain decisions as an aspiring advocate. It will never happen again, my Lord.”
